For those upset about the departure of Betrand, perhaps this pic (from Jones’ Instagram page) will make you feel a little better.

You can’t help but be a little excited about this kid’s athleticism 

And he posted a pic of him in a TU uni, which, given recent events, is encouraging to see

I get what you are saying, and think it would be great to see someone with athleticism finally play at Towson. But don't get sucked into the Skerry Cycle!

Please no positive news! Only negative to satisfy the Debbie’s and Nancy’s of this board.

I thought you were going to channel a great quote by a former Governor of MD, and former VP of the country, “nattering nabobs of negativism.” 😆

He has ridiculous hops. Now of course there’s much more to being a good player, but damn, like I said before, seeing pics/videos of him taking off for flight ✈️ has to excite you

The positive thing is he won't be too small/not athletic enough to get on the floor right away.  It will be nice to have an impact freshman that can play at this level on both ends.  Gibson was a great add as a freshman, he definitely got stronger before his freshman year starter, will probably continue to do so.  It has the opportunity to be a nice combination of youth and a veteran/transfer presence.

You are correct. Assuming we have another guard, Jones won't play a lot right away, as Pat brings his freshman along slowly until half way through the season. But he will need to play D or he won't play as much as he'd like.

Actually, Gibson played a lot right away and Thompson played a decent amount and then a lot when Gray got hurt. A lot depends on who the last pickup will be, whether Mims or Timberlake grab that 3 spot and if Jones is ready to play both ends as well as injuries. Also, If Holland is eligible, because if he's not, Timberlake is almost certain to start at the 2. I honestly don't know enough about Jones from watching him at Oak Hill whether he's going to play 5 or 20 minutes a game this season. 

What we do know is that the athleticism of Jones and Mims is off the charts. Skill-wise, AB was really good for 10 games, was meh before that and bad the last seven. But because he's averaged double digits and there's not a lot out there right now, he's getting a ton of good looks at the moment.
